Umpire & Scoring

With more Cricket being played throughout the county, the demand for Umpires and Scorers has never been higher. Kent Cricket aim to run both Umpire and Scoring courses throughout the county in the winter months. Courses are delivered by the Kent Association of Cricket Officials at various venues within Kent and are tutored by qualified tutors. All tutors are currently active Umpires and/or Scorers.

Umpiring Courses

Umpiring Courses

The following courses are due to run in Kent this coming winter (2015/2016):
  • ECB ACO Level 1 - Understanding the Laws
This course is designed for those who intend to umpire regularly, or those that wish to acquire a better knowledge of the laws of cricket. Aside fom covering the key laws in detail, it also deals with the basic techniques of match management. No prior knowledge is required. As well as being the starting point for new umpires, this course is also a useful refresher for already qualified umpires.

All courses will be over a maximum of ten consecutive two hour weekly evenings and includes an exam following the course. The cost of the course is £105 which includes assessment and certification. If you would like to take a refresher course please contact Heidi Coleman

  • ECB ACO Level 1a - Understanding the Game
This course is 12-16 hours duration and is available to all umpires who have successfully completed Level 1. Level 1A is not intended to be a taught course but more of a facilitator-led, participative programme which introduces the umpire to self-apprasial and an understanding of the game beyond just knowledge of the laws. It bridges the gap between the knowledge based Level 1 course and the field craft and techniques based Level 2 course.

Pre-requisites for attendance on this course are: successful completion on ECB ACO Level 1: Understanding the Laws; relevant umpiring experience (at least 1 season umpiring adult cricket as a minimum); fully paid member of the ECB ACO and have a vaild DBS* certificate (formerly known as CRB).
